Sure If you want to.

But still the best method is to get your ass off the computer and practice

considering the number of posts you have and your join date i have to ask? how high do you jump SIF?
because if you jump 20" it wont be that good.
the best way to be able to describe it is by being able to do it

yes true

youre right but considering the amount of tutorials there is and how much there is content in them id rather make a ew one that will give tips on how to jump higher cause most people say that when you jump you should bend youre waist alot but if you do the saddle will be under you and you wont have any further lifting capability thats just one tip

Well i'm hoping that if you do make a tutorial it will not be a 69 word long mess with no punctuation which I struggle to make sense of...

Maybe instead of asking people if you should do it, you could have used the same thread to just do it in one?!

Any reason you used 69? Yes I know what it means but why did you use it?

hopping tutorial

S.I.F hopping



i have looked thtough the internet for sif hopping tutorials.I have personnaly watch a lot of hopping tutorials and there was only one that saisfyed me..... but, there wasent enough content.Here is a tutorial i made to help the most that i can unicyclists that want to jump high.

1. first off,get the seat in front of you and stand at 2-3 feet from the object.

2.then do a pre-hop(a hop which is before the actuall jump).stomp the tire on the ground to get the most out of youre hop.

ps:while in the pre-hop bend slightly youre legs and waist.

3.then snap up while swigning youre arm up.

ps:the arm swing is the key to a better and more controlled hop.

4.start to pull the seat up to youre chin(not to youre belly),and bend the knees while trying to tuck the unicycle under you + youre free hand should be flaping down for momentum while doing all of these things.

ps:try to keep you back as straight as possible so when you pull up the seat up youre belly isnt in the way.

ps:when youre pulling the seat up try to pull it not only upwards but a little frontwards or else youll more or less pull the seat to youre chest.

well this was my S.I.F side hopping tutorial

hope you understood the biggest part of it

thanks alot
